Abstract: The article is the interpretation of the drama Igrzysko by Leopold Staff which had its premiere in Lwów in 1909. The analysis refers to the literary presentation of Ancient symposion mainly The Dinner with Trimalchio by Petronius, succesfully imitated by Staff.
Description: Igrzysko by Leopold Staff portrays the author as a great scholar in literature and Ancient culture. Locating the plot of the literary piece in the Egyptian Antinoia in the times of the Empire allowed the author to present a variety of problems related to culture, religion, politics and customs. The drama in fact is a successful imitation of The Dinner with Trimalchio by Petronius, yet it also gains some parabolic dimension through the reference to Evangelical ideals which propagate the right of every man to freedom and happiness.
